3x3 notelet box tutorial



This is the project we made at the recent Papercrafters Meetup. This makes a cute gift, or use them yourself as a little gift card or love note. Four cards with their envelopes fit neatly into this little holder made from double-sided paper. I used a sheet of retired Haiku Designer paper and took my colour cues from that: Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, More Mustard and Old Olive. Click here for the tutorial.



Scraps of double sided paper are fantastic to use when putting together a set of cards as you get variety with little waste. And working with a set colour palette makes the cards come together quickly. I also added in Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz  ink, Very Vanilla cardstock and some Old Olive ribbon. The stamp set is the awesome Aviary set with Teeny Tiny Sentiments to add the perfect phrase. Aviary is from the current mini which finishes on 31 March. Order now if you don’t want to miss out.
